Web Time Wasters

What’d you get up to this week, friends? We saw a movie at the amazing Height theater, saw a friend’s envy-inducing new house, and today I’m headed up north for a three-day cabin escape with some of my lady friends.

A super interesting read about disdain towards motherhood.
Try it yourself, and your own list will fill in pretty quickly: Moms are square, moms are sentimental. Moms are smug. Moms post 15 baby pictures an hour on Facebook. Moms use Pinterest like they’re painting the Sistine Chapel. Moms plan a child’s birthday party like it’s the Academy Awards. Moms wear a pussyhat and attend one march and call it radical activism. Moms drink wine and make bad puns and call it a personality.

Moms age and gain weight, and unlike the “dad bod,” this isn’t attractive. Moms overinvest in their children, talk too much about them, think too much about them, and unlike involved dads, who are admirable… look, moms are just worse than dads, okay?

Fascinating! The Best Thing My Psychic Mom Taught Me Is No One Wants To Hear The Truth
Receiving a prediction did not feel good. I didn’t like being told what would lie ahead, and I didn’t like the way the Roma woman’s words haunted me. While I didn’t want to believe in her words, the way she had delivered them to me — so assuredly and so spontaneously — made me question every decision I made. I couldn’t help but wonder what exactly could lead me down a life that ended too early.

Some dos and don’t for helping someone who’s (scary) sick.

Hope you had a good weekend, friends! And I hope to see you in Habit School tomorrow!
